*Prizewinners of the Académie Internationale de Musique Maurice Ravel of 2016

The Académie Internationale de Musique Maurice Ravel, a non-profit association based in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, has contributed to the artistic and cultural life of the Basque Country for the past fifty years. In commemoration of the art of Maurice Ravel, it participates in the training of young French and international virtuosos by organising public masterclasses and two concert series promoting the French repertory.

The Palazzetto Bru Zane and the Académie Internationale de Musique Maurice Ravel have pursued their partnership focusing on teaching the French Romantic repertory for a second season. The programme of public courses, masterclasses and lectures offered to the young musicians taking part in the 2016 season concentrated on pronunciation and the concept of theatre ‘à la française’ for the singers, and the notion of a ‘stylistic school’ for the instrumentalists. Award winners from the September session will have the opportunity to present the results of their work at the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord as part of the Festival Palazzetto Bru Zane in Paris, and also at Art Night in Venice on 17 June 2017.
